It was a very, very good show. Highlights for me were a beautiful Shakedown, an incredible Tennessee Jed, Thalassa (which I've never heard before & like a lot), and of course an amazing Alligator. I was offended by Mr Fantasy being played like a Peter Frampton nasty, and there were several other tunes, including Wharf Rat, where Herring's quasi-heavy-metal chunkiness and Haynes's southern-fried slide sounded intrusive rather than harmonious. Wharf Rat should not sound like Aerosmith. But I'm departing from the unbiased review I promised. The Help/Slip/Blues was artistically wonderful. Lastly, it was a good recording.
I am well aware that you can't expect PL&F to be the Grateful Dead. But there is something in the songs themselves that carries over into renditions by other performers: by their very structure, the songs almost demand to be played TRADITIONALLY. They are constructed like folk songs, and playing them like rock may work, and it may sometimes work well, as in most of this show. But it doesn't work AS well.
Subject: Great recording
Subject: Truly, A Killer reading of the songbook.
The Greek Theater Los Angeles, a Beautiful Sanctuary within a metropolis that defies it's locality.
Subject: this show is like...
The midnight train is a world premier, and phil sings it. Warren took over vocal, i believe on the second live performance, so this is a rare cut.
This show is vivid in my memory also because it was my first attempt at taping a show. I used a pc desktop mic, and an old sony minidisc recorder that weighed like 2 and a 1/2 lbs! I've come a long way in taping in four short years.
Anyways, for all who download, enjoy!
